    I have my setting in the play store to allow me to download over the mobile network, so why am I getting the "file size too big, can only download over WiFi" error?

    So when you open Play Store, go to its settings, and tap Auto Update, it's currently set to "Auto-update apps at any time. Data charges may apply"? Just want to make sure we're on the same page here.

    Yes, that's correct.

    Another silly question--you're sure this isn't an app that wants to auto-update through the Amazon Appstore, right?

    Some apps only download over wifi. Like some games and most apps set limitations if they are above normal size. It is simply to keep people from going over there data. Why not download over wifi? You don't have access to one?

    I have this same issue. Have not seen this before. Not a big deal other than when I somewhere without wifi and trying to install something new.

    Never once had this issue with the old Moto X with these apps downloading over 4G. Most of the time I am not on WiFi, but thanks for the presumptuous response.

    I think a size limit is set. I know Amazon sets one and I do believe the Play Store does too.

    Also, what size is the app you are trying to download?

    I'm not sure, this happened with multiple apps. Twitter was one, photo grid was another

    I think I figured it out but cant duplicate it. Somehow the google play app with the option to open/uninstall came up, and then a setting to only download apps of a certain size over WiFi was checked. Once I unchecked seemed to work fine, but I can't get there again for the life of me
